Had an excellent buffet-style breakfast here - with a nice choice of items in an "all-you-can-eat" arrangement. Really good. Unlimited coffee from a really nice self-service machine (real beans - not instant). Really helpful and friendly staff - especially Lisa who was really helpful indeed!...More
